styled shoot: pastel vintage romance

Morning lovelies!

I just looove receiving beautiful styled shoots from talented wedding pro’s; not only do I get to share some amazing inspiration and ideas with you for your wedding, but I get to showcase the creativity of my favourite, and new favourite wedding pro’s too!

This pastel hued vintage-inspired styled shoot, submitted by Norfolk-based wedding photographer Tatum Reid, has a soft and romantic quality.  The soft colours and dappled light of the whimsical woodland setting compliment each other beautifully.  The styling and details combine creativity and inspiration, whilst still being simple and achievable ideas for any bride.  How gorgeous is detailing on the back of this lace dress from Charlotte Bridal?  The heart-shaped cut-out on the back is so beautiful, and so appropriate for the romance of a pretty pastel wedding.  I love how the colours of the bouquet by Ali Calver pop a little against the natural background, not too pale, and enough to make a statement.  The beautiful matching pink lips and soft, smoky eyes by Lovemoi Makeup with flowers in the brides vintage inspired up-do by hair stylist Amy add a final whimsical touch.

Photographer Tatum Reid says “I love the classic vintage touches which inspired me to collaborate on this styled creative shoot.  Shot in the soft afternoon light, the concept was a traditional vintage shoot with a romantic floral theme. I adore the pastel florals of this shoot. The little bits of vintage detail, especially the crockery, makes it extra special!

The delicate beadwork of this pretty petal design headband by Natasha Jane Headwear is an elegant alternative to fresh blooms, adding a natural, floral touch to the brides outfit.

The second part of this stunning shoot, a tribute to the Great Gatsby era of the late 1920’s and early 30’s, can be seen here on Love My Dress Blog

Thank you to all the wonderful suppliers who collaborated for sharing their work! Vintage brides, I hope you are inspired with ideas for your own weddings?!

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
